    Being short on ammo I only had 3 boxes of syntech ammo, so I went thru a box of 50 out the back of my shop and fed the hungry little thing. Not a single hiccup or anything, really happy with it! I wasn’t shooting a proper “target” per ce but I learned not practicing my 1911 skills has my aim...

    Was out and about today and it’s been a while since I’ve seen anything besides kimber 1911’s in the LGS, when I came across a Colt 1911 Government classic. Being 799 basically MSRP, I picked it up. Got it home, stripped it down and removed grip panels etc, and I’m very happy with it. It’s been a...

    Too busy to shoot this sucker, but I did get a chance to oil it down and it is sweet. Can't see in the pics but it has 30lpi front strap checkering. Thanks @AF_ONE Someone asked what CZ should have Colt produce. The answer is this.....and it should come with a Milt Sparks criterion holster.

    I've not seen this yet, only picks. Marked US Property. Every thing seems to be there, but also a generous amount of surface rust. I doubt there is any finish left on it. Dated 1918 (per seller). I know ir's tough just guessing without seeing, but an appx value would be appreciated. Thanks, Steve

    Approaching max density in the safes and there is a need for a third safe or a wider and taller second safe. Also, there are several guns with gunsmiths or in the process of being transferred that will need space in the safes. Is there an addicts anonymous group?

    So I am at my local FFL and someone was trying to sell this to them. They didn’t want to buy it and I didn’t know anything about it. I have the persons contact, but I don’t know what it’s worth, or if it’s “wrecked”. Can I get some advice from the 100s of 1000s of years of experience on the...

    Hello, I have a Colt M1991A1 made in 2000. When I shoot, get hammer bite quite often and it can become a bloody mess. Needless to say, I’d like to fix this problem. I thought this Wilson Combat beavertail might do the trick - Beavertail Grip Safety | Drop-In | Government |...

    I picked up my first Special Combat Government earlier this year from a member here, and it's the model with the Ionbond finish on the frame. I thought my Google-fu was stronger, but I can't find for the life of me what the frame material is. Can anyone confirm what the frame material is...

    Looking for an old school Wilson Combat build maybe on a Colt. Two-tone with a square trigger guard just for the heck of it. I missed out on a couple at auction earlier this year. If none seem to pop up I'm gonna have to get a fancy ACW Prodigy! And missing out on the one that sold here this...

    Hi, I purchased a new Colt Classic 1911 with [6] extra Colt factory 7 round magazines and thought I would swap out the magazine springs for Wolff XP 11# springs for extra reliability. With the new springs, and 7 rounds in the mag, I have to smack the magazine really hard to get it to seat. The...

    I have never owned a Colt firearm, not one. I'm looking to add a Colt 1911 to my collection and my question is a simple one: How do I pick the right one? Colt has a longer history with the 1911 than pretty much anyone, and I know the company's standards have risen and fallen in intervals over...
